"Boss Grady's Boys" "An emotional intensity, a theatrical fluidity, and a sense of humanity that are rare and very special."--"Sunday Tribune"

"Prayers of Sherkin" "A luminously beautiful work ... It has a crystalline clarity in its language, a deeply compassionate interest in character."--"Irish Times"

"White Woman Street" "Profound, amusing, and poetic, with a sure grasp of contemporary moods of displacement."--"Observer"
